Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow
Let's look at what Ezekiel found in the 5th Century B.C. when God showed him what was happening inside the temple (Read Ezekiel 8:5-18)
Verse  ...Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.
Nothing has changed since then! (Read Ezekiel Chapter 13 where Lying prophets are condemned)
Note: 13:5 makes reference to the same "day of the Lord" that John was taken to.
vision of the defiled temple wasn't meant for his time any more then God's
visit to him in a flying saucer, as he describes in chapter one, could
have been understood prior to our present space age. You and I have no
problem whatsoever understanding what the vehicle was that God visited
him in because we have actually seen 5 tons of shiny metal fly so many
times that it is not at all unusual to us. It's normal everyday life. But
imagine someone 2500 years ago who actually saw something like a Jumbo
747 and four F-17 Fighter jets land right before his very eyes! Well,
Ezekiel did see "something like that", only
the vehicles that he saw were circular and more high-tech than our crude
propulsion aircraft of the 21st century!
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
